Oxford Friends

William Morris, La Belle Iseult, 1858

“I have seen Rossetti twice since I saw the last of you…. Spent almost the whole day with him last time, last Monday that was. Hunt came in while we were there .. Rossetti says I ought to paint, he says I shall be able… I am going to try, not giving up architecture, but trying if it is possible to get six hours a day for drawing besides office work…” [Morrris to Price July 56]
